The Bellevue Police Dept. agrees with the Seahawks: The charges against RB Marshawn Lynch were bogus.
The two-day investigation of a woman’s claim that Lynch was responsible for an assault and property damage at a Bellevue apartment ended late Wednesday night when the department issued a statement that said, “He was not involved in this incident in any way.”
The investigation continues but without Lynch as a suspect.
A mystery remains as to why BPD sent a statement unsolicited to many media outlets that said Lynch had been accused in the 2:30 a.m. Sunday incident, but also admitted it was unsure if he was even involved.
The Seahawks in a statement Tuesday called the claim “bogus,” which was a rare term for refuting a police investigation. But the team was in training camp mode, in which players were in a secured hotel under a curfew and subject to bed checks.
Perhaps BPD has the preseason NFL lead in turnovers.
